MUMBAI | Indra Tower | 300m | 80 fl | Pro


X-Posting from the Mumbai Subforums. Thanks Jai for digging out the details.
Current Status: [Aug, 2011] Proposed for Vijay Associates (Wadhwa) Developers, pending approval.

Designed by 'cybertecture' architect James Law for Vijay Associates (Wadhwa) Developers, the supertall Indra Tower will leave a colorful mark on Mumbai's growing skyline. The design for this iconic tower is inspired by a water droplet dropping into a pool of water.

From the description posted by James Law Cybertecture on Archello:
Quote:
Water is a precious yet so common element on Earth, which is critically essential for the survival of all forms of life. Its own intrinsic character allows it to create different form of beauty in the nature. The concept of this building for The Indra Tower, is emerged from capturing the fluid state of which a single drop of water is freely dropping into water. The form of Indra Tower is smooth and in a streamline form as the droplet is in balance between gravity and dynamics before reaching into the water. The form of the building is composed with different depth of the balconies on each floor. It gives a lot of variety to each units and contain different characteristic on varying levels. The Indra Tower will be an iconic building within these area with its emphatic height. Each units are transcendent with their infinity and impressive view from different angle of the unit and ultimately to become one of the world class residential buildings in India.

The building form is designed in corresponding to the orientation of the view of
the surroundings. The facade is facing North West which has the maximum and infinity sea view. Residents will enjoy a board sea view from each unit. While each units are facing the infinity sea view, There are the city view at the back, so the resident can enjoy both city and sea view within their own unit. Due to the impressive height of the building, all units are having the extensive view without any obstruction blocked their view and becoming the iconic building in this area. Sky club house is located on the roof of the building which provided an infinity view for the residents by making use of its outstanding height of the building. Airways is evidently a major consideration of this project as there are more than enough cross ventilation that will provided to each units to make sure each units are having enough fresh air.

Yuck, another one of these gruesomely out of place helipads.

I like the little droplet-shaped thingy, though, and the swimming pool.

Creative but ugly. Reminds me of the 1970's AMC Hornet commercial "Hey toots, where's the rest of your car"

Cool pool, ja!


Sort of meshugge, all of this. I'm not sure whether I love or hate this, but it sure is some creative stuff.
Mumbai is really going ahead with supertall projects now. Nice to see India progressing! It's about time.

This is ugly. And what makes it worse is that it is ugly and tall. Besides, does Bombay really need any more super luxury residential towers?

Thankfully, I doubt that this design will make it through.

It all depends on those colored lines... If it's just light that's only visible at night it would be cool. But please don't let it be colored panels or glass (or even worse, painted).

It looks like it's going to be painted. That is to say, if this one gets approved which I hopefully doubt.

It kind of looks like something you could build in Tokyo in the 80's.

That is one ugly building. It almost feels as I am almost getting spamed (in a positive way) by new projects from Mumbai. What an exciting city.

Because we don't find the design of this proposed structure appealing, you feel we have sad lives?

I guess we should never disagree with you, or hold personal opinions that are not yours....not.

This design doesn't excite me too much. I suppose if built it would look cool.

I have a feeling it would look worse in real life.
